The University of Hull was established in 1927 and opened its doors one year later to an initial cohort of just 39 students and 14 departments, all operating out of a single building.
Originally an outpost of the University of London, the then University College Hull offered courses in the arts and pure sciences, before becoming an independent institution (and Yorkshire’s third university) in 1954.
Today, it offers over 2,000 courses to 18,000 students across six faculties, with its academic portfolio comprising 50 disciplines in the arts and humanities, business, education, health, the sciences and the social sciences.
Courses are split between two campuses, with the main one located two miles north of Hull city centre in leafy, redbrick surrounds. Its second campus is in the seaside town of Scarborough, 40 miles from Hull and within an hour’s drive of the city of York.
